I will admit this is a great cleanser and leaves skin feeling refreshed, but I feel like it dries my already dry skin out. I use the Origins anti-aging face wash and I will continue to use that one because it leaves my skin moisturized.

Awesome

I was so excited for this product! I took it camping and it was great - my face felt clean and I didn't need water. This even removed my mascara!

Gel irritated my skin
Sampled

My skin is iffy with gel cleansers and that happened with this too. My cheeks got inflamed and just generally my skin didn't care for this.

Great gentle cleanser

This is a really great gentle cleanser. The smell is nice and mild and the sample size was pretty generous.

I thought it was average, nothing special. It smells clean like generic soap, is a thin runny liquid that lathers fairly well. Its a cleanser and body wash. It does its job. Not my favorite, but no complaints.

Love this company
Sampled

Love the company and would like to continue trying products from them. However, this face wash is a little drying for me. I can not use it every day. I am currently looking for a good facewash for night time, that cleans well and deep but is good for sensitive skin! I have very sensitive skin!

This product is similar to the one I use now, so I like it a lot. I have sensitive skin and had no negative reactions to this wash.

best cleanser

this is my favorite cleanser. it is not too harsh (my skin gets really sensitive to even the gentle stuff), and it takes very little to use.

Left Skin Smooth and clean
Sampled

I really liked this cleanser. I have a touch of oily skin and this seemed to really get my oil and make up off real efficiently. Not only that, but it has a great smell, lathers really easily, and a little bit seems to go a long way in my opinion. I will definitely be ordering this.
